After reading the Associated Press story “What’s in your wallet” (Sun Journal, May 11), it has become quite apparent that public voting is only a formality and does not hold water any better than a sieve.

If people are to vote, they need to be educated on what they are voting for, and its ramifications, rather than just having the Legislature say, “Oh, we don’t agree with what you voted for so we will determine for you what your vote should have been.”

It’s not that I disagree with what is being proposed, it’s the manner in which it is being done.

So, the message has been well received — the public vote means nothing.
